In June 2017, the Aspen Health Strategy Group met for three days and took on hard questions related to the complex and nuanced challenges regarding the U.S. opioid crisis.   We are pleased to present the final report from our work, based upon the group’s rich discussion. In the tradition of the thought-provoking conversations and dialogue on how to address critical societal issues — the hallmark of the Aspen Institute — the report includes five big ideas that we believe can spur needed and immediate action to respond to this national public health epidemic.
